PLYMOUTH, Wis., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sartori Company announced today that it will be releasing a very limited quantity of two Limited Edition products; Cannella BellaVitano, the newest addition to the Limited Edition line, and Cognac BellaVitano, named "3rd best cheese in the world" at the 2011 World Cheese Awards in Birmingham, UK. Each cheese wheel will be hand signed and numbered by Sartori Master Cheesemaker, Mike Matucheski.
Cannella BellaVitano, Sartori's newest Limited Edition cheese, was created by taking sweet, buttery BellaVitano, aged at least 15 months, and steeping it in a cinnamon liqueur. "The smells and flavor of Cinnamon give people a feeling of warmth over the holidays which inspired me to create this unique holiday cheese," states Sartori Master Cheesemaker, Mike Matucheski. "Some small pieces on top of a slice of warm apple pie make for a mouthwatering experience," he adds.
Cognac BellaVitano, the most premium Limited Edition item, truly stands out as a cut above the rest. The cheese itself is extra-aged; it matures for at least 18 months. After the aging process, it is submerged in a premium Cognac and is only ready for sale when Sartori Master Cheesemakers believe it is just right. The end result is a unique and complex celebration of smoky, nutty, oaky flavors with toasted notes of vanilla and caramel from the Cognac.
These products may be purchased at select specialty cheese shops and where fine cheese is sold. Additionally, a limited supply of 4 oz. wedges will be available for sale on the Sartori website cheese shop (www.sartoricheese.com) and will be included in the 2012 on-line "Limited Edition Gift Box" this holiday season.
"We are very excited to share our amazing hand-crafted Limited Edition products over this holiday season," says Sartori CEO, Jim Sartori. "I hope they are passed around many tables and brighten the day of our customers, their families and friends."
